Canada’s renowned scientist David Suzuki received an Award for Science from the U.S. National Wildlife Federation calling him “one of our strongest allies north of the border.”
“Our highest priorities must be the air we breathe, the water we drink, the soil that provides food and the biodiversity that keeps us alive and healthy.” – Dr. David Suzuki
He is also a nature enthusiast that makes use realize that nature is good for all of us. It’s a known fact that we benefit by spending more time outdoors than spending more face time. I can attest to that.
Being at work 7 hours a day in front of the computer contributes very little for my well-being. The minute I take coffee and lunch breaks that means green time for me. A walk around the block can depressurized me and calms me down. Spending time in nature reduces the negative results of automatic thoughts and redirects my mind to being playful and extrovert.
This is plain science and all I need is me as the guinea pig.
For the month of May, David Suzuki launched the 30 x 30 Nature challenge by spending 30 minutes in nature for 30 days. That is doable. I extend this challenge whoever reads this wherever you are in planet earth. This is not limited to Canadians.
So I say to you, get off your butt, walk away from the computer, go outside, breath and relax. Not to mention, unplug yourself from any gadgets and open your ears to the sound around you. Leave your “I” behind. No iPhone, iPod or iPad. Can you do that?
Then come back and tell me what you did in 30 minutes and how it fells. See that space below for comment? That is for you.
